Greatly Reduce or Eliminate Debt
Depending on the type of bankruptcy that you file for, you can significantly reduce or entirely pay off your debts altogether. With Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you liquidate all your non-essential assets and to pay back your debtors and start over with a clean slate. With Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you can come up with a plan that works for both you and your creditors to repay an agreeable portion of your debt within a few years. In either case, you get a fresh financial start without the burden of debts looming over you. Some people feel like they just have to work hard and pull themselves up by their bootstraps. That method can work in some situations, but there are other situations in which no matter how hard you work, you may never get out from underneath your debt without a little assistance from a bankruptcy attorney.
